Southwest Summer Salad

I am a big fan of really fresh salads, and this new one is no exception! It is perfect by itself, but I also like to make taco turkey or beef and add to the salad for a complete meal.

1 head Iceberg Lettuce (or Romaine if you prefer)
1 Green Bell Pepper, sliced
1 Beefsteak Tomato, sliced
1 Cucumber, sliced
1/2 cup Red Onion, diced
1/2 cup Canned Corn, drained
1/2 cup Black Beans, drained
1/2 cup Black Olives, sliced
1/2 cup Mexican blend cheese (I like the low fat kind)

1/3 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 limes, juiced
2 Tbsp Cilantro
Garlic Salt, to taste
Pepper, to taste

Mix dressing in small bowl or food processor. Lightly drizzle over salad to give it just a hint of lime and cilantro. Toss and serve.
